Good afternoon, did I just hear a * rumor * it's Friday, squeeeeeeel to confirm please lol Today I'm sharing with you my DT card for Stampin For The Weekend
and our theme this week is


As Halloween approaches we would love to see some super spooky projects and just a little reminder we must see stamping somewhere on your project

Sarah Hurley has recently released a Halloween digi kit and I have to say I had an absolute ball. I had forgotten how much fun Halloween crafting can be. It was about late summer when the children and I had went strawberry picking for the second year running and this year. However this year I decided to try jam making, I know who would have thought lol. My inspiration came from a very good friend of mine who had made some plum jam earlier on in the year. Of course that day she had also made some homemade scones so it was a double treat hee hee. Anyway here's my little offering


If you would like to join in the fun just click here

Ooops just realised the time,better dash lol
where ever you hope you have a lovely weekend.

A Toast

Good evening peeps how are we today?If I'm honest I've been struggling with this post,I just cant find the right words, too much going on in that head off mine lol So I'm going to cut right to the chase and tell you about our fab new challenge over at Sarah Hurley Challenges.

This week our theme is


did I just hear you gasp lol I know I did when I first read the challenge. The truth is it's not that scary in actual fact it's really really fun and that's coming from someone who just doesn't do messy hee hee.

For this challenge I just had to use Sarah's teal ink spray, I just love the colour and the results you get are amazing, even I can point and spray lol

stamps - lotv music background stamp
- sarah hurley cocktail and mitten stamp
-scrabble stamps
tools- x cut snowflake punch,nestie
mist spray- Sarah Hurley (teal)
stash-gems,black cord
stickles-star dust

I decided to create a christmas card, not only is it my favourite time of year but as usual I never make enough always rushing about at the last min. The bright teal colour also reminded me of my love for cocktails so this stamp was just perfect.

If you want to join us this week then pop on over here

take care my lovelies

Xmas wishes

Good morning girlies hope your all having a fab week, I know I am. Today I'm sharing with you my dt card for Charisma and we were lucky enough to be given an image of our choice from Some Odd Girl. I instantly fell in love with Mistletoe Kaylee, I wonder who she is hoping to catch under her mistletoe lol. The sentiment was created myself using my favourite scrabble letter stamps and the LOTV music background stamp was a recent birthday gift from a very special friend of know who you are lol

Our theme this week is

Colours of Autumn

Good morning peeps are we having a lovely morning?

As I sit here writing my post ,the sun is shining and those blue skies are so deceiving tricking you into thinking it's warm but no it's bitterly cold outside. I have to confess I do enjoy the autumn weather. I think it's the thought of getting all wrapped up cosy and warm in my hat,gloves and scarf. Also this time of year the children do love playing in the woods collecting leaves,helicopters, conkers and having contests to see who can find the biggest stick. When we return home the leaves are stuck on paper, the conkers are transported about the house in the boys trucks and the helicopters are dropped from the top of our upstairs landing to the hall below.It's fascinating to watch the helicopters spiral so effortlessly and it's hard not to join in the fun lol

Well enough of my ramblings, I've got to tell you about a fabulous new challenge today over at Stampin For The Weekend. We are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp and they are offering some guilt free shopping, so whats stopping you pop on over here!!

Our Theme this week is

Colours of Autumn

I dug out one of my favourite gorjus girls stamps and my yummy bloom and grow papers.

The dt girls have done an amazing job with their autumnal projects this week so please pay them a visit here and leave some love.

I've got a busy weekend ahead of me,shopping catching up with friends I've not seen for months, taking the boys swimming and a little bit of diy around the house. I might even convince hubby to take the boys to cinema so I can get some much needed crafting time. So take care and hope you all have a fabulous weekend.
